With Cognos Analytics 11.1.5 report authors can now visualize data on a variety of custom graphics, such as illustrations, diagrams and maps via a new feature called “schematics”. Popular examples include airplane seating, floor maps, engine maps, stadium seating etc.
Our approach is to use decorated Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) files as the basis for the custom graphic and to provide matching of data to the decorations in the SVG to facilitate rendering of values.

For 11.1.5 this capability will be available in reporting only. Schematics will be available in dashboards and stories in a future release. #LearnCognosAnalytics#home#authoring#classicviewer
